I am a little surprised at some of the strong dislike of Terrapin . Here I though it was one of their most majestic creations, both musically and lyrically ( I think a view shared by the authors ). Now the album version is flawed by in not really being finished . The live versions can be the emotional hi-light of a show, but a lackluster performance, and make is seen like a lot of time taken up with little improvisation, same way I feel about a much lesser song, Throwing Stones . And like the "Samson" like "jam" in the middle of T. Stones, the post "The whistle is screaming " riffing could have used some variety ( me, never a fan of too much repetition ).
But count me in as pro-Terrapin , and pro 77 , and , yes 72 is better, the band at their peak .

On a side note about Terrapin. Further has nailed the whole suite perfectly the last two times I have seen them. Puts a smile on my face and that's all you can ask for sometimes. Live in the moment. Peace

Have to agree, though I'm not the biggest fan of this song they do a very nice version of it.
